Biogenesis and function of the lipidic structures of pollen grains
Abstract Pollen grains contain several lipidic structures, which play a key role in their development as male gametophytes. The elaborate extracellular pollen wall, the exine, is largely formed fromExpand

Mechanisms of lipid-body formation.
Most organisms transport or store neutral lipids as lipid bodies - lipid droplets that usually are bounded by specific proteins and (phospho)lipid. Neutral-lipid bodies vary considerably in theirExpand

The Domains Required to Direct Core Proteins of Hepatitis C Virus and GB Virus-B to Lipid Droplets Share Common Features with Plant Oleosin Proteins*
In mammalian tissue culture cells, the core protein of hepatitis C virus (HCV) is located at the surface of lipid droplets, which are cytoplasmic structures that store lipid. The critical amino acidExpand

Caleosins: Ca2+-binding proteins associated with lipid bodies
We have previously identified a rice gene encoding a 27 kDa protein with a single Ca2+-binding EF-hand and a putative membrane anchor. We report here similar genes termed caleosins, CLO, in otherExpand

Intra- and extracellular lipid composition and associated gene expression patterns during pollen development in Brassica napus.
Pollen development in angiosperms is regulated by the interaction of products contributed by both the gametophytic (haploid) and sporophytic (diploid) genomes. In entomophilous species, lipids areExpand
